Thank You!
Back To School Safety
Thank You! 
Given the current economic conditions, tight budgetary restrictions and the uncertainty and strain it creates, the QTS family would like to let you know how deeply we appreciate your loyalty and your decision to entrust us with the transport and care of your patients and residents.   
We understand that you can choose to spend your hard-earned dollars with anyone, especially during times when budget restrictions often force rate over service. 
Your steadfast loyalty and patronage reminds us that our goal to create a culture of compassion and service and ongoing search to retain the highest quality employees who take pride and ownership in all that we do, is absolutely worth the bumps and bruises of a rate driven industry.  
It is a privilege to provide you and our community with the service that knows no restrictions. We remain steadfast in our commitment to you and strive to be your opportunity to relax in an otherwise stress-filled, fast-paced day, as you move forward with confidence that we have made you and each one of your transports our highest priority.
Cardinals Humor?
Football Confessions...  Our assistant pastor, an avid football fan, had to hear confessions on Friday during an important Cardinals / Green Bay game.  When one man had finished his confession, the Father asked him, "Are you by any chance going to be around the church for awhile?" 


"Yes, Father," answered the man, "I'm painting the church, and I'll be here all afternoon."  


"Would you mind, then," the priest asked, "coming back in now and then and keeping me posted on the game?"  


"Sure thing."  


Later, the priest slid open the confessional grille and heard, "Father my last confession was fifteen minutes ago.  Since then I ain't done nothing and neither have the Cardinals."

To Our Favorite QTS Customer,

Can you believe it? Football is in pre-season (whew!) and the Diamondbacks are headed to the playoffs (we hope!). It must be August in Arizona!

Pretty soon the temps will be falling back to a survivable range, humidity will vanish for another 4 months, and we enjoy the play-offs and head for Univ of Phoenix Stadium for tail-gating. 

Congratulations on surviving another summer. Thank you for being our customer. We look forward to serving you in the days, weeks, and months ahead. Be sure to watch for our vehicles on the road - as we add state of the art vans to handle our increased customer requirements.

Safety Tips - Top 10 to Protect Your Kids

1. Plan a walking route to school or the bus stop. Choose the most direct way with the fewest street crossings and, if possible, with intersections that have crossing guards.

2. Walk the route with your child beforehand. Tell him or her to stay away from parks, vacant lots, fields and other places where there aren't many people around.

3. Teach your child never to talk to strangers or accept rides or gifts from strangers. Remember, a stranger is anyone you or your children don't know well or don't trust.

4. Be sure your child walks to and from school with a sibling, friend, or neighbor.

5. Teach your kids - whether walking, biking, or riding the bus to school - to obey all traffic signals, signs and traffic officers. Remind them to be extra careful in bad weather.

6. When driving kids, deliver and pick them up as close to the school as possible. Don't leave until they are in the schoolyard or building

7. If your child bikes to school, make sure he wears a helmet that meets one of the safety standards. Research indicates that a helmet can reduce the risk of head injury by up to 85 percent.

8. If your child rides a scooter to school, make sure she wears sturdy shoes, a helmet, kneepads and elbow pads. Children under age 12 should not ride motorized scooters, according to recent recommendations from the Consumer Product Safety Commission.

9. Teach children to arrive at the bus stop early, stay out of the street, wait for the bus to come to a complete stop before approaching the street, watch for cars and avoid the driver's blind spot.

10. Remind your children to stay seated at all times and keep their heads and arms inside the bus while riding.
